I installed IIRF on win2k Server IIS5 and it worked without a hitch.
Installed on Win2k3 Server IIS6 and it breaks the site it's assigned to. It's like stylesheet disappears.

It was setup to run site specific in both instances.

I checked Event Viewer and nothing was logged, as well the status is IIS shows 'loaded'. Any ideas?

Read permissions are on on the DLL, the ini file, and the containing directory
Read permissions to the IIS_WPG group as well.
It's also been added and allowed to Web Service Extensions.

Is read the only permission required? Im at a loss...

Files are in

I set permissions to IIS_WPG and IUSR_hostname to Full Control, still no go.

Here are rules I am using:

RewriteLog  c:\temp\iirfLog.out
RewriteLogLevel 0

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)/content/([^\.]*)\.html$ $1/index.php?sef=$2 [I,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)/(.*)$ $1/index.php?urlMask=$2 [I,L]

Are you sure the path to your css files is done in a way that support url rewritting?
That means qualify the path. It's a common error. Check this post: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/02/26/tip-trick-url-rewriting-with-asp-net.aspx
from Scott Gu: at the end of the post he show some hints on how to refer to the css files.

Thanks for the reply hgarcia.

Unfortunately no path qualifying made a difference. If this were the case, would I not experience the problem on Win2k server IIS5 as well? IIRF works like a charm on this setup.
